About Gil

Meet Gil. He’s an 8-year-old kid. Gil is a bit of an underdog. He doesn’t have the newest toys or live in a fancy house. His parents are split up – his single mother supports them with her factory job income and his father isn’t around as often as a father ought to be. But none of these things seem to have an adverse affect on Gil’s relentless optimism and upbeat attitude.

Gil: A chubby and cheerful 8-year-old boy. He loves comic books, video games and superheroes, all of which fuel his already overactive imagination. He is an only child who lives with his mother and sees his father on alternate weekends. He’s somewhat oblivious to the complexities of the adult world, which almost always leads to a funny situation.

Mom: A hardworking single mother whose primary concern is the welfare of her young son, Gil. She is a hands-on mother who works full-time in a factory. She struggles with the guilt that all working mothers face. Her income allows her to meet the necessities in life, like food, rent and utilities, but not always the bonus stuff like the latest video game console. Dad: A classic under-achiever. He loves his son, but isn’t winning “Father of the Year” any time soon.

Shandra: Gil’s best friend, neighbor, classmate and supportive confidante.

Morgan: Gil’s mean-spirited classmate and antagonist.
